As we returned from our travels, we started to unpack. There’s still a lot of stuff lying around the flat and I’m taking the time to slowly put things back in their ”home”.
I love Gretchen Rubin’s books. She recently released a new one called Outer Order, Inner Calm so I bought it for the flight back. The book is full of short practical tips you can dive into and a good reminder of how we can sort our clutter. I’ve worked with Marie Kondo concepts for a while now and know that our flat has still a few pockets where it could do with some work.
A friend of mine is one of the tidiest people I know and her flat is immaculate. I once asked her what her secret was and she said that everything has a home. Nothing is ever left lying around. It lives somewhere. It’s something I am reminded of whenever I see clutter lying around and read such books.
Not only does this “everything has a home” principle save you time, but it also saves you money. How so, you ask? It saves you time as you don’t need to keep searching for things, it will be in it’s home. It saves you money because you don’t need to buy duplicates of things since you will always be able to find them.
Does everything in your home have a home?
